- The goal of CBL is to provide Columbia Business School’s most promising entrepreneurs with a strong ecosystem in which to successfully grow their businesses upon graduation. 

- The CBL community is anchored around the co-working space yet benefits extend far beyond that.

- CBL members have the benefit of an office filled with like-minded yet diverse peers.  They are at the center of regular information-sharing forums and networking events and also receive resources and business advisory support from the Lang Center, Columbia faculty and experienced CBS entrepreneurs.

- CBL had a very successful inaugural year and will continue to grow into the future.
